The Retrospective Exhibition at Club Narooma was cancelled this year however, we are including entries here.
My painting ‘Winter cheer’ was inspired by the wonderful vivid colour which can be seen around the neighbourhood during the winter months. Although it’s not native it is such a decorative plant and brightens up any garden.
It is difficult to paint as the petals or leaves wilt very quickly and one needs to work very fast to establish it on canvas. In fact I had to go and pick some fresh flowers and try to recreate the arrangement in order to complete the painting.
Here are some photos of members, taken back in 2011, 2012.
Glass, Brass and Eucalypt was the first painting I entered into a MACS exhibition, back in 1994
I was still living in Albury and drove over with the painting on the day of the hanging.
I missed the judging, but they still accepted the painting.
